Things That Are True, But Not Accredited

The alt right has some funny ideas about facts. They repeat all kinds of outlandish claims, ranging from ludicrous statements about human health and biology to bizarre economic theories to mind-bending conspiracy theories. And it’s not even that they’re necessarily wrong – they often quote numerous studies, statistics, evidence and logical arguments to back up their claims. But they forget the most important thing – is what they say accredited?

Just because something is technically true, doesn’t mean it is accredited. Accredited means that it is endorsed by a range of accredited people and institutions, who are the gatekeepers of what we can and cannot say and believe. These accredited authorities acknowledge the facts, statistics and arguments put forward by crackpots many years later after the alt right has prematurely drawn conclusions from them. The experts then, in their own time, eventually give the nod, and a once non-accredited fact becomes accredited, and the general public will then acknowledge it, with no reference whatsoever to the fact that they insulted, ignored, misrepresented and mocked the non-accredited people who brought it up years before.

Take for example, human health. In the quack world of “alternative health” on sites like “mercola.com“, it has been well documented for many years, in study after study and by researcher after researcher that there are significant benefits to following a largely low carb diet, that cholesterol and egg yolks are good for you, and that sunshine is essential to human health in more ways than one. But accredited doctors, dietitians, and government dietary guidelines continue to say the exact opposite, and even launch lawsuits against people within accredited institutions who dare to utter these facts. The alternative health world has also presented masses of evidence that most degenerative diseases including cancer and Alzheimers are linked to mitochondrial dysfunction, inflammation and insulin resistance, all of which are massively influenced by diet and lifestyle. But if this were true, then accredited doctors, accredited treatments and accredited pharmaceutical companies wouldn’t be nearly as important – and in fact would be ripping people off by charging exorbitant prices for treating preventable diseases. Gall bladder surgery for example, costs about $40k, but in the alternative quack world, a standard liver flush using malic acid, epsom salts and olive oil is proven over and over again to remove all gallstones and liver stones. But the liver flush is not accredited.

Now let’s move to conspiracy theories. It’s a fact that building 7 was not hit by a plane during 9/11, and no credible explanation has been provided by the accredited authorities as to how it collapsed. However, since accredited authorities have not yet approved any narrative relating to it, the general public duly does not talk about it, and rolls their eyes at anyone who does. If and when CNN talks about it, the public will get the green light and talk about it, reacting in the manner in which they are told to. Now consider Obama’s birth certificate, which¬†Sheriff Joe Appio and his lawyers have analysed extensively with a range of forensic experts and determined to be fake. This too is not an accredited fact, and will therefore get you funny looks from average Joes who simply follow accredited narratives.

And finally we come to economics. It is well-repeated by the accredited media and economists that we can only ever have low single digit levels of economic growth every year, and that frequent bubbles and crashes are a fact of life. But libertarian crackpots continue to make arguments that parasitical entities like the Federal Reserve, the government and the banking system are sucking the lifeblood out of the economy and stealing the fruits of our labor and innovation. But, if it ain’t accredited, it ain’t true, even if it is true, so people don’t believe it.

So that’s it folks – if it’s not accredited, it isn’t true, even if it is true.

A most thought-provoking article MDB, your last sentence literally blew my mind. How can something be true and not true at the same time? Were you out in the sun too long or perhaps burning the candle at both ends? Suggest you take a brake from your accredited travails!

That is standard thinking in the accredited world. It is George Orwell’s doublethink, that lets you hold on to contradictory beliefs. If your favorite eunuch has put a law saying that criticizing biometric ID and its linkage with your bank account and mobile phone is treason, and you know in your heart that this is a concentration camp type of control, what do you do? If you criticize, you’ll get arrested. If you praise it, your EBT card will be credited with money. So you praise biometric ID surveillance, while believing otherwise. Welcome to dystopian utopia.

Black Lives Matter

The alt-right loves to twist George Orwell’s views. Orwell was a socialist. He just believed that Joseph Stalin had become hypocritical and that he had moved away from communism and back towards a form of crony capitalism dominated by Stalin and his allies, similar to Russia today under Putin. In effect, Orwell was an anti-Putinist before Putin was even born. Orwell’s views are identical to those of Nikita Khrushchev, who similarly disliked Stalin’s approach.

Personally, I think Orwell was unfair to Stalin, who was a great leader (and whom Russians even today recognize as the greatest Russian in history). Stalin had to deal with capitalist traitors; that required him to take some harsh actions as a practical matter, such as sending them to gulags. He also had to keep some corrupt people on-board to keep them as allies. Stalin’s skill in transforming the Soviet Union to becoming a superpower proves that the “ends justify the means.”

That said, it’s great that students are forced in schools to read Orwell’s works as a “counterpoint” to the other Marxist ideas that they learn about because that way they wind up as socialists no matter which side they choose. The fact that the alt-right quotes Orwell in support of their cause just illustrates that they are illiterate idiots.

If you straighten all the curves in this story, it’s exactly 10 miles longer than Pinocchio’s nose.

This is such an important article. Public order and progress demand that we not only accept but believe with all our beings what accredited sources tell us. There is safety and reassurance in crowds; who would want to be the conspiracy theorist freak that everyone else laughs at (even if the theories are technically accurate)?

Besides, since relativism is the prevailing ideology, notions of ‘truth’ have no meaning anymore. We can only appeal to wiser people than ourselves (the government, the accredited media) in order to know what we should believe at any moment. It’s not as though this leaves us short of things to discuss or argue about; every day the accredited media serves us up a veritable feast of articles about the Kardashians, LGBTQ+ issues and the occasional ‘weird news’. Frankly, it doesn’t matter which TV station, newspaper or MSM online news source you subscribe to; each one will carry exactly the same news items so nobody misses out.

There has never been a better time to be alive.

Why do we need the different TV channels and media conglomerates, if they all carry the same “news”?
Diversity means wealth, we know the primitive man did not even have one news channel. Or even one boxed cereal. Now we have boxed cereals with different textures, different colored flakes all made by companies who on the surface seem to have nothing to do with each other, but are all related subsidiaries of big corporations. And the same synthetic vitamins, preservatives, corn syrup, and over-processed over-hybridized wheat show up in the different cereals. These provide business for pharmaceutical companies, “diet and nutrition” doctors, and surgeons doing bariatric surgery, liposuction, and tummy tucks. Plus keep the FDA in business “protecting” the people.

Do let me know how hybridized wheat is harmful.

Black Lives Matter

The alt-right is crazy and anti-science. Opposing “wheat hybridization” just means opposing wheat agriculture, which always involves breeding new wheat and selecting better strains (i.e., hybridization). Some people have complained that farmers have generally selected more wheat with higher gluten content to increase product life and that this has allegedly created health problems in some people. But why did they want to do this? PROFIT. In socialist agriculture, the government would have factored in the health needs of the general public and put PEOPLE OVER PROFIT. Moreover, the complaint over “wheat hybridization” is easily resolved by more farmers simply growing gluten-free crops for those who are more sensitive to gluten. This is a non-issue, but “Vladmir Putin” and other members of the alt-right just want a villain to attack to divert attention from Russian collusion, etc.

Gluten-sensitivity problem is easily solved by government as well. Genetic testing of parents should tell which of them have a chance to create gluten-intolerant children, and the parents can easily be sterilized.

Some people get angry when being lied to. If you know what the other person says, or what the media says is a lie, then there is no point getting angry with the other person or media. You know what is true, so why get angry about it.
Every day we have attacks by “ISIS”, which is immediately investigated, and the guilty party exposed in less than a fraction of a second, by all the newspapers and TV news channels. You know the whole thing is a charade, and you gain nothing by raging against the media. A better solution would be to simply say MSM is fraud, and find sources you can trust.
Trump is a hero in that sense. He has exposed the problems with global warming crooks, aggressive pharmaceutical companies, and soulless bureaucrats who sell their country to the globalist scammers.
When whole populations are finding that eunuchs simply follow orders about biometric IDs, vaccination protocols, taxes, regulation and concentration camp surveillance, suffocating everyone under the stench, Trump is a breath of fresh air. If he holds on for another 6 months without any invasion of Syria or N. Korea, the tide will change.
May God bless Trump and his supporters, and may he lead him in the right direction. People the world over are hoping he’ll free them from the suffocation.

This is so ridiculous I literally can’t stop laughing. You are aware that Obama ALREADY SOLVED all of the nation’s problems??? The problem today is that Trump is reversing what Obama did because Trump is a racist who hates African-Americans.

Vladmir Putin
Vladmir Putin

Yes, that’s true. Obama solved all the problems, but he made a mistake. Instead of continuing as a permanently anointed Eunuch-in-Chief, he let Trump take over. And Trump exposed all the bungling by Obaminy, Hillary Cackles and the Deep State.

Interesting – how is vaccination bad? I would have guessed that vaccination is the reason for increased human life span, but nutjob conspiracy theorists think that we live on average 30-40 years more than at the beginning of 20th century because of Confederate flag or something.

Let us also not forget that we Progressives are on the right side of history. Even though that history hasn’t happened yet we are on the correct side of it. So it really doesn’t matter what’s true or untrue. We are on the right side and that’s all that matters.

Black Lives Matter

Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s investigation into Obama was a complete joke because everyone knows he is biased and untrustworthy. In contrast, the accredited media’s investigations into the murder of Mike Brown, the murder of Trayvon Martin, Saddam Hussein’s robust WMD program, and Trump’s collusion with the Russians have all been conducted by unbiased organizations of the highest reputation for trustworthiness, such as CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, and the Washington Post. That’s how we know the truth. Credibility matters, and accreditation determines credibility.

Outstanding article MDB! It is clear that so-called FACTS need to be considered relative to accredited reality surrounding us. For example, millions murdered by Nazis is bad, really bad, and we need to be reminded about that constantly. Prancing around wearing swastikas thus is verboten, even though swastikas are a very ancient Indian symbol. On the other hand, 20+ million killed in Soviet Union by Stalin and Lenin, and 20+ million killed in China by Mao are accidental deaths that might have been necessary to modernize these countries. As a consequence, wearing red communist star on your clothes is hip and cool, even though that red star was specifically created to represent communism.

Furthermore, most of the population (with the exception of accredited experts) will not be able to put facts in proper context. Consequently, most of population should be informed about things that they are interested in and can understand – e.i. Kardashian’s new lovers, butt size, and fashion preferences. Facts should be provided only after accredited experts have agreed on the interpretation, and if they have decided that interpretation would be difficult, the reporting of facts should be restricted to community where these facts are already known. For example, Chicago murder weekends should be reported (sparsely) only in Chicago local news, while most of the country should hear only about Republican governor Rauner blocking the Illinois budget deal. Similarly, Hispanic demonstrations in Texas against other minorities should be reported only in local news (once or twice for 10 seconds, without showing pictures) and the rest of the country should be informed only about Houston first gay mayor.

Kardashians have cellulite on their butts, people got to see the un-photoshopped images. How can we unsee the ugly butts? All the laser treatments by the accredited progressive doctors cannot fix the Kardashian butts.

Black Lives Matter

Kim Kardashian sat on a wall.
Kim Kardashian had a great fall.
All the Obama bronies and all the Obama trans-men
Couldn’t put Kim Kardashian’s butt back together again.

A little bit of photoshop can fix any amount of cellulite!

I can always trust what AT prints to be true and accurate. They are real news Mister President!
On the other hand, some of the comments trigger me. As an example the video posting on this article by Anon of Hillary in medical distress causes me indescribable emotional trauma. Remembering that episode brings out PTSD. What if we had lost her in that moment???
I know MDB has been working hard on getting a way for filtering the comments section. I would like to be only exposed to approved comments made by accredited readers/commentators of AT.
As Accredited media it is your job to protect me from negative dialog.
Where are you on the recruitment of dreamy Chris Cuomo. I would think that he could filter these comments like he did on the Wikileaks e-mails.
